    when i connect my K550i to laptop, the driver is not installed automatically, and it is not detected by PC suite, same time, i have another SE z550i model, which gets connected to PC perfectly and automatically.

    I am not sure, how to proceed further, tried all the trouble shooting instructions, tried un-installing & installing the PC suite that came with CD

First connect your SE mobile phone to PC and when it gives u option to slect a mode, PLEASE select File Transfer. Then in your PC gotoDevice Manager (Ctrl+R>type devmgmt.msc). Now under 'Portable Devices' u'll see ur SE mobile Phone as Memory Stick.Now Right click it and update Driver Software(using CD/Internet/local PC folders).

  • Now before that plz install the latest SE PC suite at DOWNLOAD.
And u'll be fine with everything.

Games and application not working.error shows as operation failed.model no sony k550i pls suggest

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
A famous firmware bug, you need to update the phone's firmware, to do so, I've provided a Sony Ericsson's link below, please follow the link to download the utility and read the guide.

You must have your USB Data Cable and an active internet connection to do an update.

Once downloaded, install the application, and the wizard will guide you on how and when to connect the phone.

Note: You should backup all the data before update by the SE PC Suite, as after the update the phone will be in "Out of the Box" condition.

If you are having problems, or have questions about, so ask me. I'm here to Help.

If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.

Want to download pictures. Also would like to know how to charge only

To download pictures there are many ways: 1. Internet (data charges may apply).(located on the Menu of your phone) 2. Computer Pictures (via usb cable)(need to install PC Suite software first) 3. Another phone who has a bluetooth or infrared feature ( these are some cool tools of our phone where we can transfer pics, music, data.. wirelessly) To charge the phone via cable: You need to have a computer and install the PC Suite software in CD that is in the box of the phone. After installation you can then enjoy transferring photos, music, data etc. Have Fun!
